Dehradun witnessed inaugural of an Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC) by the Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat on Wednesday at IT Park in Dehradun. The ICCC has been developed by Dehradun Smart City Limited (DSCL) and once it is fully functional it will enable officials to monitor a host of services and activities throughout the city.
Ashish Srivastava, CEO of DSCL said, “The ICCC will be connected with several other Smart City ventures. The centre will receive inputs from approximately 200 cameras installed by police in the city and 40 additional ones installed by the DSCL. This will enable monitoring of traffic, parking, solid waste management and even pollution levels through environmental sensors installed at select spots in the city,” Srivastava said.
The centre has incurred a built cost of Rs 294.41 crore and its implementation is expected to be completed by May 2020.
Speaking at the inauguration, Rawat said, “It is a big honour that Dehradun is currently ranked at the 25th spot among 100 smart cities, despite being inducted in the fourth list. We are working towards making Dehradun the first city of the country to truly be a ‘Smart City’ in all aspects.”
He added that the District Collectorate building that is being built to the tune of Rs 200 crore under the Smart City initiative will be named after former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
